  • More Fall Foliage from Fulton and Franklin PA!

    Hi everyone!

    Hope you had a great weekend!  The weather here was perfect…cooler temperatures and peekaboo sunshine!  We’ve had many visitors over the last two weeks at our place, so it’s been busy.  Teddy is finally “crawling” – or his version of it which looks like belly surfing on the carpet.  Matthew was such a perfect little crawler, so it was a little odd seeing Theodore pulling his little body along the floor with his arms,  but I read that every baby has their own way of getting around.  And we’ve been wondering when his teeth will come in since he’s been teething for months!   It looks like both tops and bottom teeth will be coming out at the same time any day now!  Matthew had two little bottom teeth by this age, so Teddy is definitely doing things a little differently than his big brother!

    In weather news, we’re seeing some snow in the mountains across the Northern Rockies – this system will impact a big chunk of the country through the workweek dropping temperatures and bringing some snow totals across Denver, Colorado by Wednesday.  Meanwhile, a cold front pushing across the Great Lakes is bringing some showers over the interior Northeast. 

    Tropical Storm Rina has formed in the Caribbean, and is forecast to become a hurricane in the next few days just off the Yucatan Peninsula.  We’ll have to keep an eye on Rina’s progress, although it doesn’t look likely that the U.S. will be affected by the storm.

    And more fall pictures to share with you.  Margie took these for us from Fulton and Franklin, PA:


    Send me your fall pics to @janicedeanfox

    Have a great day, everyone!

Hey Gwen, I'm glad you had a nice vacation. I bet it was pretty down there. That's a beautiful area. Hey to everyone else out there. It's a soggy day in Cumberland. We've gotten almost a half inch of rain already and it's going to be raining for quite some time. With the temperature only in the 40's, I'm sure it's cold out there. I don't work until 1:00 today so hopefully it will stop raining & warm up a little by then. Have a great day, all! Margie

Hi everybody! Made it back yesterday from my mountain vacation. Had so much fun! And it was GORGEOUS...even snowed on the mountains between Cherokee and Maggie Valley. I'm trying to get my son (Ben) to show me how to tweet those pics. I don't twitter, but he does. Maybe he can teach an old dog a new trick. BTW, JD, all 4 of my sons were very different. Even the twins did not do things at the same pace as each other. Celebrate their individuality. Gwen :)

Hey folks, it's a chilly but sunny morning in Cumberland. It's going to be a beautiful day with a high close to 70. I wish I had the day off. AJ, the first picture with the stone house is at the retirement community where my parents live. (It's a guest house.) The whole main drive is lined with those trees that turn a beautiful red in the fall. That whole area of Pennsylvania is beautiful. I hope everyone has a great day today. I hope Gwen is enjoying her trip. Take care, all. Margie

Margie, thanks for the beautiful pictures again of the wonderous coloring book of Mother Nature and what lovely country roads I would love to be travelling on....Well, as I heard many times that they threw away the mold when they made me and I realize that is the same for each of us including Matthew and Teddy and especially their Mom!!! Sure hope the hurricane goes far away from all..AJ

Hi all: Oh Janice. I smiled when I read your note about your boys being different in many areas of "getting bigger." Remember, God made each one of us unique, and Matthew and Teddy will probably not do too much the same as they go through life. How much fun that will be! My three children were all different in their own way. Enjoyed more beautiful pics from Margie. Thanks for sharing. Its a great time of the year. Audrey

Don't compare them Janice. You'll go crazy. One of my 4 walked at 18 months and the youngest (who is now the head mechanic for Continental) was in the middle of the dining room table the day he turned 9 months old. THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT.
